SUNDAY POST: Splendid

I have been waiting for the right moment to post photos of my new favourite lake, which is Lago di Landro in the Dolomites. This Sunday Post theme is “Splendid” [Latin splendidus, from splendēre, to shine.], as in splendor of the mountains reaching high above the Alpine lake, glistening in the sun, magnificent and imposing, asking to be visited and explored …  place to get lost in, and find oneself…

  1. “A place to get lost in, and find oneself” – yeah totally agree, you are right – I have hiking in that area – I was not lost ‘haha’ – not inside or outside, but it’s a wonderful area… 😉

    Great shot, my dear… 😉

    • Thank you Cecelia… I should look up the meaning of ” a little corny” – maybe it has some significance I am not yet familiar with.

      • Paula, I think my comment caused a little confusion. When I wrote “Splendid splendor,” I meant that my phrase was maybe a little corny or silly but that your blog was a beautiful, magnificent blog. I’m so sorry for the misunderstanding. Please forgive me. I’ll have to be more careful how I phrase things in the future.

    • Beautifully written too, not corny at all. Paula is a great person and has a knack for writing and she would never leave a mean petty comment on anyone’s blog- yuck!

      • Ooops…. I think you misunderstood me, or rather I was not clear. I meant that MY statement “Splendid splendor!” was maybe a little corny, but that the post was magnificent. I can see how I was not clear on this and I am SO sorry for the misunderstanding. Paula’s post is beautiful. NOTHING corny about it at all, only my comment possibly. Please forgive me for the misunderstanding.

      • Cool, I’ll check it later. I’m currently on my “comment on other people’s blogs round” now. I’m a bit behind because of my two last posts: I spent a lot of time writing one of them and then suddenly there was this fire that called for my rapid response 🙂

    Thank you so much for your beautiful post. It is honor for me, that you dedicated this nice music to me. I am not sure that I deserved it. To be honest I turned red 🙂 Thank you very very much. I am touched!
    Wish you the best in everything. You deserve all the best!

    Best regards, Arlen
